DTAC has no signal in one of a countries

Recommended Posts

It's worked in all the countries so far, for years. In North America too. But now in South America it's not working -- it won't connect to any mobile operator service provider. What can I do?

 

My initial goal is to be able to receive sms from Kasikorn. Nothing else.

 

What can I do?

 

If I install their app, it'll require connection to internet via my original sim-card only to activate itself. Alternatives?

Did you check to see if DTAC has roaming agreements with the country in South America  that you're in? If it doesn't, the South American networks won't recognise the DTAC SIM card - from a quick glance it looks as though DTAC has roaming agreements with 60 countries, that means there are 135 countries it doesn't have agreements with.

Where is the agreement?

It could be that your phone does not support the local partner's spectrum. Some South American countries have unusual and unique frequencies.

 

Obviously, the DTAC Call app might work, assuming you have WiFi and have properly registered for that service.

 

More detail about your location, phone (make/model) and availability of WiFI would be helpful to those trying, in turn, to assist you.

Also, are you prepaid or postpaid with DTAC?

Prepaid.

 

I don't have Dtac call installed, and thus I can't install it now because I wouldn't be able to receive activation code.

 

South American frequencies are unusual? The ones of North America not? In Mexico it worked.

If I talk to the support on the phone, will they be able to activate the app? Or do anything?

as for my phone, it's able to find networks in this country, but they won't allow to connect to them

 

thus, the problem is that there's no roaming
